How to Make Your Valheim Server Appear on the Community Server Listings

When you open Valheim, you’ll notice that there are server listings when you select the Join Game tab. These are called community servers. It’s worth noting that all servers, including these community servers, require passwords to join.

How to Make your Valheim Server Appear on the Server Listings

Via Control Panel Config File Editor

  1. Stop your server.
  2. Navigate to the Files > Config Files tab on the left side of the control panel.
  3. Click on Valheim Server Settings.
  4. Change the Public value to Enabled and press Save.
  5. Start your server.

Valheim has a limit on the number of servers it can list, so some servers might not appear due to there being too many servers to show. Because of this, we don’t recommend connecting to your server via the community server listings, as this is an unreliable way of finding your server. Instead, we recommend joining via IP or Steam server listings.
